Just about a year ago,
You answered with "I guess,"
When I asked you if I could be the girl by your side,
The one you smiled down on, the one your friends all knew
Whom you introduced to Mom and Dad as your girlfriend.

Just about a year ago,
Was when I first held your hand.
I should have known then where it was going to lead:
To phone calls and text messages and all those wonderful hugs
From the first time, to right before we said goodbye the last.

Just about a year ago,
We drove around together.
You had no license, so I did it,
But you always felt bad,
Such a gentleman.

Just about a year ago,
I found out some of what makes you laugh,
A little of what makes you mad
(But remember, your sister looks up to you)
And a whole lot that makes you smile.

Just about a year ago,
I opened my heart to your possibilities,
And got a wonderful reward.
I found my best friend, my partner in crime,
The most faithful man in my life.

Just about a year ago,
I gave love one more try,
And what I got, was the most wonderful surprise.
Because on that dock, in the dark, when I first slipped your hand in mine,
That was when I started to fall in love, possibly, for the first time.
Something I wrote for my boyfriend of "just about a year"
Long distance, but somehow we've made it work

Thank you so much :D I wrote it for my ex, but no regrets from that year and a half we spent together, but the feelings are still there
